    Omega was not the flop I was led to believe it would be. I agree with the sentiment that Aria was never a rich and compelling character, but the larger reviews seem unjustly harsh. The bad press, I suspect has more to do with publications trying to save face after giving ME3 perfect score when the ending was sub-par. Regardless, Omega was an entertaining adventure.

The bad press, I suspect has more to do with publications trying to save face after giving ME3 perfect score when the ending was sub-par. Regardless, Omega was an entertaining adventure. We have the chance to return to Omega and are greeted with vibrant new environments, unique enemy types, and interesting battles. Will the dlc affect the ending? No, but that doesn't make it any less entertaining. The weakness lies in characters. Aria is more a thug than a charismatic tyrant. Petrosky is less a tactician and strategist than simply one more obstacle. However, this made it seem truer to the Mass Effect universe. An over-powered biotic has power simply because she has greater ability than others who seek it. Cerberus recruits humans with massive egos that underestimate their competition. And Shep will do what he needs to do to gain the forces required to beat the Reapers. I wish my squadmates could have come, but the adventure is worth attempting if you enjoy the ME universe and want to extend Shephard's tour. Expand

    A person's like or dislike of Omega hinges on one thing: whether they think a multiple hour romp focusing primarily on one character in the Mass Effect series is interesting enough to warrant a 15 dollar pricetag. If you hate Aria, you'll likely hate this DLC. There's no hub to return to, no new squadmates - only temporary ones - and a completely self-contained story.

However, it excels at focusing on one thing and magnifying it with precision: Aria's no holds barred attitude and desperate race for revenge in a grueling ground war that takes you into the bowels of Omega for the grittiest DLC experience ME has to offer.

    It's too pricey, too inconsequential - and too late. [Feb 2013, p.85]

    While Omega has its good parts, it doesn't bring enough of that signature storytelling to the forefront. I love pulling the right trigger to shoot dudes, but I enjoy using the same button to interrupt a cutscene even more. This DLC doesn't understand that.

    The lack of emotional weight makes Omega just another pointless series of hallways chockful of mildly challenging cannon fodder.
